B-510 Material Science (MET)

OPTIKA B-510 Series is ideal for measuring needs, quality control applications, inspection in several fields, including manufacturing processes, soldering and material science.

With a field of view of 22 mm, B-510 material science microscopes are equipped with metallurgical attachment and the state-of-the-art, exclusive X-LED8 lighting source as reflected illumination; when included, transmitted light is through X-LED3 lighting source.
The oblique illumination opens new horizons by revealing with relief contrast and significant clarity even the finest details, which may be hard to be distinguished when using conventional brightfield techniques.
Objectives are IOS W-PLAN MET and NCG (no cover glass), being purposely designed for microscopy use with no a cover slip whilst Köhler diaphragm optimizes the microscope optical path to produce high sample contrast and homogeneous bright light, reducing image artifacts.

Reflected light microscopy is the method to observe specimens which remain opaque even when ground to a thickness of few microns. The range of specimens falling into this category contains metals, ores, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors (unprocessed silicon, wafers, and integrated circuits), coal, plastics, paint, paper, wood, leather, and a wide variety of specific materials.

MATERIAL SCIENCE / METALLOGRAPHY

Reflected light microscopy is the method for observation of specimens that remain opaque even when ground to a thickness of few microns. The range of specimens falling into this category is incredibly wide and includes most metals, ores, ceramics, many polymers, semiconductors (unprocessed silicon, wafers, and integrated circuits), coal, plastics, paint, paper, wood, leather, glass inclusions, and a wide variety of specific materials.

Improving The Most Important Aspects of Microscopy Experience

TOP IMAGES COME FROM IMPRESSIVE OPTICS

» Trinocular heads with 22mm field number
» True infinity optical system available (IOS)
» Fully centerable condenser for precise light control

LABORATORY GRADE OPTICS

» IOS W-PLAN objectives, high numerical apertures
» Planachromatic optics with more than 90% flat field
» Significant optical correction, low field curvature and distortion

CONTRAST ENHANCING METHODS WITH OBLIQUE ILLUMINATION AND DIAPHRAGMS

Oblique illumination, also known as simple darkfield, is considered an alternative to the darkfield technique except that, instead of using dedicated darkfield objectives, the system uses the same brightfield objectives and the specimen is lighted from a movable “curtain” that has the task to modulate the oblique light; doing this, the light comes from only a different perspective generating a pseudo-darkfield effect.

Best resolution, color and contrast WITH Köhler Illumination

B-510 Series is equipped with Köhler which optimizes the microscope optical path to produce high sample contrast and homogeneous bright light, reducing image artifacts, reflections and glares.

In this way, you will achieve the full control over the illumination aperture to reach the best compromise between resolution and contrast and for some enhancements on the depth of field.

X-LED3 AND X-LED8 EXCLUSIVE LIGHTING SOURCE

Achieve bright images, improved colour fidelity, pure white colour temperature, incredibly low energy consumptions and longer lifespan with the unique X-LED technology, able to double the light intensity for incomparable performance. Relevant money and energy saving thanks to the incredibly low energy consumptions which allows you to cut the electricity bills by 90%!
X-LED3 is on transmitted light (when included); X-LED8 is on reflected light.

Safe And Convenient Operations

The rackless stage has been designed with a belt-driven mechanism that allows a smooth movement without any protruding part. This design gives you a more compact solution and lowers any risk of injury after accidentally hitting the rack with your hands.

A NEW FRONTIER IN ERGONOMIC PRODUCT DESIGN

ELEGANT DESIGN WITHSTANDING EVERYDAY USE

» Ergonomic positioning of the main controls
» Long lasting mechanical parts, rackless moving stage
» Maintenance-free illumination system

EASY TO CARRY, LIGHT, STEADY

» Improving productivity, reducing fatigue
» Increases job accuracy and quality
» Easily portable, with comfortable handgrip

EXTRA LARGE SPECIMEN VIEW (22 mm Field Number)

Enjoy a 22 mm field of view ensures you to gain peripheral view and comfort when observing the specimen. This means more efficient inspections and allows a natural and easy view, particularly needed in a laboratory environment.
